If you own a business located in an industrial building, you have a lot of responsibilities. One of them is to make sure that your roof is doing its job of protecting the interior of your building and your merchandise or supplies. A failing roof can eventually result in profit loss or steep fines. If water damage or weakened walls and ceilings are involved, it may even present a serious health hazard to your employees and customers. If you notice any of the following signs, it’s probably time to replace your roof.
- Blistered or peeling paint
- Damaged gutters
- Visible interior leaks
- Evidence of interior water damage, rust, or mold growth
- Damaged roof lights
- Moss or mold growth on the roof
The Perks of Improved Energy Efficiency
Another significant benefit of installing a new commercial roof is improved energy efficiency. A new, energy-efficient roof helps you save money on heating and cooling costs. When your roof is helping your HVAC system perform at its best, your employees, customers, and vendors are more comfortable; this means better customer relations and more productivity in the workplace. An energy-efficient roof may also help you qualify for special tax incentives, and creating a greener workplace will win you major points with today’s environmentally conscious consumers.
